Any experience with ebay's Wheel and Sprocket?
I see that Wheel and Sprocket is selling Mavic Reflex rims laced to Formula hubs for less than $200. That's less than it would cost me to lace them up myself even shopping around for the lowest prices of components. Has anyone had any experience with these guys? I don't even see how they can begin to offer these wheels at these prices.
Wheels and Sprocket is actually a physical store. There are a few of them around where I live. I've never heard any bad things about them. The way they can offer wheels so cheap is they have franchise (maybe) bulk buying power. When we buy Formulas is would cost us $80, for them maybe $50.

Look at all these buttons
I thought their service was phenominal off of ebay.
Two wheels is two wheels
I basically bought those exact wheels from them. (Actually a hipster bought them, then sold them to me new in box on CrisgList at a good discount). They were wrapped/boxed nice. I've only ridden the rear wheel a couple times, but it seems pretty solid. iirc, their feedback/rating is super high.

I work at one of the Wheel & Sprocket stores. Buying in bulk + ebay! = savings. We have a couple pairs in our store, and they're good quality. The fact that they're tubular makes them cheaper, since the hipster fixie crowd doesn't really go for tubulars, and thats the bulk of our fixedgear wheel sales.
I bought a wheelset from them last month. Not from the ebay site, from their web store. Good price, quick shipping, zero problems.
